I remember back when I worked in the field of organic agriculture and environmental marketing. No one had a clue what I meant when I referred to the importance of "going green." Yet today the green debate has rapidly spread from the rows of organic farms to the halls of corporations all over the world. Even technology companies are joining the movement and debating the issues at hand.
On June 11, 2008 experts on various sides of the eco-technology issues will converge in Santa Clara to debate these "hot" topics:
Data center efficiency: AC vs DC power
Data center efficiency: liquid vs air cooling
Client: thin vs. thick client
In addition to the debates, the event features keynotes from Lorie Wigle, general manager for Intel's Eco-Technology Program Office and president, Climate Savers Computing Initiative and Andrew Fanara, head of the ENERGY STAR product development team, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Register to attend in person or tune into Open Port's Blog Talk Radio the day following the seminar to hear interviews with the speakers.
This debate should be quite compelling with industry experts from esteemed organizations like IDC, The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Emerson Network Power, Intel, Microsoft, InfoWorld, and Verari Systems--to name a few.
